Underneath the 2017 Ecoboost Raptor

Pictures shot at the Canadian International Autoshow. Sorry for the quality, I was on one knee with my phone in a crowd of people all googly eyed and drooling at the mouth...

If that's not LED lighting below the side steps, then it might be something for them to consider, great feature to have at night, but not a necessity.

I see a spare tire under there which is nice to see. So many cars don't even come with them anymore. Looks pretty sturdy down there too.

Thanks for giving us a perspective that we haven't had before.

Yea but all pickups still do, so its really not strange.. besides you want to explore baja only to find your back up plan is a rubber patch

Nice snaps Lundy, Cheers!

I can remember. Did a u-turn and drove over a curb and popped my tire. Had to drive to Canadian Tire and get it fixed. The whole thing was an ordeal. Not that I would have known how to change the tire myself if I had one on my car anyway at that point.
